Labor and employment law is a critical area that encounters frequent change and complex regulation. We stay current with employment trends and legal developments to help our clients avoid problems and protect themselves.
At McNeil Leddy & Sheahan, we handle all facets of employment-related matters, including cases involving employee termination and discipline, employment discrimination, sexual harassment, medical leaves, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
We regularly represent government entities, not-for-profit organizations, and private employers on all aspects of employment and human resources. Our expertise includes hiring, employment contracts, personnel benefits, labor disputes, employee handbooks, workplace injuries, and severance agreements. We have extensive experience representing management in all aspects of labor and employment law, including arbitration and administrative hearings. We also have considerable experience negotiating collective bargaining agreements.
Our focus is on avoiding difficult situations before they arise. Our employment law attorneys work closely with our government and business clients to develop personnel policies and update them when needed.

These efforts help businesses and organizations avoid costly employment litigation. But when the need arises, our experienced attorneys are there to effectively represent our clients in a court of law.
